How about offering a code flag lima for purchase ?
That’s a great idea! We have less than five small flags available in the store online. We will be restocking soon. Here’s the link: https://shopherreshoff.org/products/personalized-signal-flags?variant=39988287124
I always flew the solid Yellow for Quarantine.
The solid yellow flag (Q) means “I am free from disease–I request the inspectors check my vessel”; it is flown before going through Customs or immigration. The L flag is flown when health officials or the ship’s master have determined that disease is present among the crew, and have directed that the crew may not mix with local populations. It is flown for the duration of time specified by the local authority.
I was just looking at the Nathanael Herreshoff Steam Engineer entry and the link on the photo of the Clytie links to the wrong page. It should be this one: https://www.historicnewengland.org/explore/collections-access/gusn/276589/
Love the Lima Project. I found it via the Wooden Boat live FB interview with Evelyn Ansel.
Thanks for bringing it to our attention Tony! Will get right on it. Very glad you’re enjoying the project!
Hello Everyone. I sail sail-number 584 in the Bevery Yacht Club. By trade, I am an attorney, and also a Justice of the Peace. Last fall I married a young couple in my H-12! I was wondering if this is a first, and if the event (and its photos) should be registered somehow in the Herreschaff museum???
Hello Everyone. I serve as a Justice of the Peace, and from time to time I marry couples. Late last summer, I married a couple in my H-12 (Sail No. 584). Do you think that was a first?
Best to all,
Beverly Yacht Club
Hi Terry! While we can’t say for sure, it’s certainly possible that was a first!
e.ansel…….A wonderful interview with Wooden Boat….you’re a natural commentator, and to have had the wooden boat experience at your age is a treasure beyond words. Please do more online content in and around Hereshoff with links to Matt at Wooden Boat.
Congratulations to your management for the time and effort.
Just watched the woodenboat interview with Evelyn Ansel which lead me to this site. Great interview and great site, looking forward to exploring this with more detail
We are escaping Covid 19 for a week on the vineyard 9/26-10/3 and many years ago were able to rent a Herreshoff for a week there and just loved it. We will be in Edgartown with a dock. Does anyone know of someone who would rent one to us for the week? We ar good sailors and steep wards por this lovely, lovely boat.

You might contact Bill Roman at the Edgartown Yacht Club for recommendations. There are a number not racing regularly tho is is one of our largest fleets.
WOW just what I was searching for. Came here by searching for boat
I read in the Building 28 Shop Blog nr. 12 a reference to Herreshoff’s Rules for Light weight wooden boat building found in Skene’s. In The Classic Yacht Symposium 2006 is an article about The Rules for Construction of Wooden Yachts By Halsey Herresoff. I now wonder if the Herreshoff Rules in Skene’s are the same as published in the 2006 Proceedings.
If not, could you please supply me with a copy of the Herreshoff Rules found in Skene’s?
Look forward to your reaction.
The personification of the terms “skimming dish” and perseverance
This is a perfect example of museum work being more rewarding and more challenging than most people think.
I wish to request larger fonts and less ‘white on yellow backgrounds’ in your emails and website. Sorry to be an old crank but I am getting older and can just barely read your content. I have reading glasses and everything but it’s just too dang tiny and yellow for me, and, I suspect, others as well.
Hi Spencer! Sorry about that, we are looking into it and will see what we can do to improve the situation going forward…
